~~ If you are not already familiar with Karl Popper and his work, perhaps, the easiest way to learn more about him and his writings is by googling his name or visiting the following websites:
- Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_Popper
- Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy (IEP): https://iep.utm.edu/pop-sci/
- Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (SEP): https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/popper/

Then perhaps it is time to read some of Karl Popper’s own well-known work. Routledge has a dedicated website listing all the books by Popper that they published over the years for an English-speaking audience.
Or you could listen to some of Karl Popper’s work on YouTube, for example Conjectures and Refutations as narrated by Elyse Hargreaves. The Open Society and Its Enemies is another book that is available as an audio file. It has been published by Tantor Media.
Note that Popper’s books are read throughout the world and have been translated in over 30 languages. Currently, December 2020, the 20th reprint of the English Routledge edition of The Open Society and its Enemies is available. The 21st edition of the German collected volume Auf der Suche nach einer besseren Welt (In Search of a Better World) was printed by Piper Verlag. Bilimsel Araştırmanın Mantığı (The Logic of Scientific Discovery) had its tenth reprint in Turkey by publisher Yapi Kredi Kültür Sanat Yayincilik. in Spain, the 15th edition of La logica de la investigación cientifica was published by Editorial Tecnos.
